Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Brody approaches the group of teenagers on their smashed boats, the angle cuts to show Brody approaching seen as if from Cable Junction. At this point, there is a huge mistake. The teenagers' boats are clearly visible in the foreground, the kids have all completely vanished, and you can spot the cameraman standing on the boats quite clearly.
Continuity mistake: When Brody thinks he spots a shark, he rings his bell, then begins to descend the watch tower. In one shot you can see a woman with blonde hair, sitting on a beach-chair, at the bottom of the watch-tower. In the next overhead shot, as Brody runs across the beach, the same woman now suddenly has an orange hat on. (00:44:50)
Revealing mistake: When the teenage guy is getting attacked by the shark, the shark slams him up against the boat. He attempts to climb back on the boat and the shark pulls him down and the guy rips some wood from the edge of the boat. You can see the cut away part of wood that will be ripped off before he actually rips it off. (01:11:05)
Trivia: In the first Jaws movie, the name given to the shark was Bruce, named after Steven Spielberg's lawyer. In this movie, the sharks were called Fidel and Harold. Harold was the name of David Brown's lawyer.
Trivia: This is the only Jaws movie to be directed by a non-American.
Trivia: It was so cold throughout the filming that the actors' breath was visible in some scenes. In order to avoid this, the actors had to suck ice cubes before filming.
Sean Brody: What's after Cable Junction?
Bob: The Atlantic. Then Ireland.
Martin Brody: You don't have to worry about being sued or being ruined if this turns out to be what I think it is, because there won't be anybody here!
Question: When the shark has deflated Doug's boat, Andy exclaims, "Hey Bligh, someone popped your balloon?" Why does he call him Bligh?
Question: Can anyone tell me the name of the music the band is playing when chief Brody and his wife are dancing?
